From foul home runs to bad calls. The San Francisco Giants’ Jung-Hoo Lee has had his share of bad luck at the plate. But on defense, he made up for it with a super-catch that stunned everyone.

Lee started in center field against the Philadelphia Phillies of the 2024 Major League Baseball (MLB) at Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday and went 1-for-5 at the plate. This brings his season batting average to 2-for-4.

Lee faced ace Aaron Nola on the mound for the Phillies. Nola was 4-1 with a 3.32 ERA this season. He signed a seven-year, $172 million contract at the end of last season, making him the Phillies’ “one-club man”.

Lee’s bat came out swinging in the first inning. In his first at-bat, he hit a 91.2 mph fastball on a one-ball, one-strike pitch, but it was retired on a fly ball to center field. His second at-bat of the inning was a disappointment.

With runners on first and second in scoring position, Lee took a 91.9-mph fastball on the second pitch of a one-strike count. Again, it was a big pitch to right, but it sailed over the right field foul pole. 안전놀이터 It was a foul home run. He went from a one-pitch, two-strike at-bat to a six-pitch at-bat, but it was a fly ball to shortstop.

In the third at-bat of the fourth inning, a bizarre ball call rattled Lee.

A knuckle curveball that dug into the body on the second pitch was called a strike. It was a clear ball in the strike zone as displayed on MLB Gameday. One ball, one strike. The third pitch, a 78.5-mph knuckle curveball, was called a strike even though it appeared to be low. It was marked as slightly in the zone, but it was still a debatable pitch. It was called a one-and-out, two-strike pitch, and he fouled off a 91.1-mph fastball on the fourth pitch for a foul tip.

Fourth at-bat with the bases loaded in the seventh inning. Lee Jung-hoo faced Orion Kirkering. Down to two strikes, he fouled off pitches four, six, and seven to work a full count before hitting an 85.3-mph sweeper on pitch eight. Lee sprinted to first base and reached first as second baseman Bryson Stott checked for the leadoff runner. Ramonte Wade Jr. followed with a single to left to load the bases, but Jorge Soler’s grounder to shortstop cut the deficit to one run. Lee was unable to reach base after that.

In the ninth inning, Lee batted for the fifth time with one out. Lee faced Philadelphia closer Jose Alvarado. On a two-strike count, Lee hit a 92.1 mph cutter outside on the third pitch and forced a grounder to shortstop. It was enough to put a runner at second base.

Lee didn’t carry over his disappointment at the plate to his defense.

In the bottom of the first inning, he stunned everyone defensively, chasing down a 105.5-mph fastball from Kyle Schwarber and snagging it all the way to the fence. The ball had a 9.5 percent expected run rate and would have been a home run in four of the 30 major league ballparks.

One of the more amazing defensive plays came in the bottom of the fourth inning. In the bottom of the fourth, Schwarber chased down a hard hit ball from leadoff hitter Yohan Rojas and threw it away. It was a slower pitch than Schwarber’s earlier one, at 101.7 mph, but it had a 20-degree launch angle. But Lee kept his eyes on the ball and stretched out his glove. The tip of his glove caught the pitch and completed the double play. Jordan Hicks on the mound raised his arms to show his appreciation for Lee’s super catch.

San Francisco fell to 3-4 with the loss. 온라인카지노사이트 The Giants began a four-game series in Philadelphia with a loss. They are now 15-18 on the season. The offense couldn’t generate much momentum as starter Jordan Hicks quickly went down after allowing two runs on four hits and four walks with three strikeouts in four innings.
